5 Minute Christmas Crack: A Simple Sweet and Salty Snack |

Tis the season for sweet and salty, and easy. This simple Christmas Crack can be made in 5 minutes or less — and is incredibly tasty. Does it get better than that?



4 cups Rice Chex
4 cups Wheat Chex
1 cup Pretzel Sticks
1 cup Mini Marshmallows
23 cups M&M’s
24 oz White Chocolate for melting


In a large bowl combine the cereal, pretzels, and M&M’s. Mix them up a bit to evenly distribute.

Meanwhile, over a double boiler or bain marie, melt the white chocolate according to it’s package instructions.

Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, drizzle it over the cereal mix and combine with a spoon or even your hands. Be sure the cereal mixture is evenly coated with chocolate. Melt a little more white chocolate if needed!

Spread the mixture onto a large sheet of parchment or wax paper. Let dry for an hour or so, until the chocolate is cool and hardened. Break it into easy pieces and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
